Chelsea feel Brazilian gem has already increased in value

Chelsea are very happy and excited about Brazilian wonderkid Andrey Santos, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Blues are actively working on a work permit and the club want him to stay this season and add depth into Graham Potter’s squad.

Chelsea signed Santos from Vasco Da Gama for 12.5 million Euros, initially the deal was said to include add ons to take the total fee up to 20 million Euros but Chelsea managed to close the deal for 12.5, no add ons included.

The club feel that he is already worth 20-25 million Euros even though he hasn’t kicked a ball for Chelsea yet, this is because he has scored 5 goals in the U20 South American Championships in 6 games, despite being a midfielder.

After the conclusion of the tournament, Chelsea expect to have Santos flying to London to join up with the team.
